This March we bought a new house that hadn't been updated since the 70's...and not in a cool way  Sad
We decided to add a bedroom where the old formal living room was which left us with an odd space between our kid's rooms. So we turned it into a playroom/ kid art studio.

First I painted the main wall white and used paint markers to make frames, then accented with the green and blue from the opposite wall.

I striped the wall opposite the frames, and painted the remaining walls blue.

My 13 month old son, Red, crafting away!

I used shower curtains for curtains

I tape the artwork up high and down below the kids can color in the frames.

I used an over the door shoe organizer to hold art supplies.

here's a quick before pic.

(those orbs are just dust, not ghosts Smiley )

I ended up opening a home daycare and this room works great for the kids!

Ahh I love this! I don't even have kids and I want this in my house!

I REALLY want some funny hoop-framed embroidery! Wanna do a personal swap?

the frames are an awesome idea-theyd be super cute with chalk paint inside, but either way im sure your kids must love it!

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest
